"Pursuant to the aspirations of Government and Vision 2030, there is a compelling need to embrace appropriate technology towards disposal of human waste in informal and dysfunctional settlements as well rural communities," he said.

"Government has replaced the outdated pit latrines, Blair and open defecation with a new flushable model which is affordable and suitable for the rural system.

"Unlike the urban flush system which uses nine litres of water, the new system only requires two litres for flushing. The new flush system is also cost effective as it uses existing infrastructure, allaying the fears of possible demolitions of the toilets being used."

Minister Garwe said the system was economical and viable in terms of water use and the overall cost of inquiring the infrastructure.

"In rural areas, where water is a challenge, the system is installed with a tank which can be filled manually from time to time," he said.
